There's a bright Golden Haze on the meadow. :)

Good morning all you lovely people, I thought it was about time I stopped feeling sorry for my self and got back with you all. Firstly thank you for all your very kind messages and also to Lyn for reminding me to get a move on. I am more than on the mend, not quite ready for taking on the decorating of the kitchen which is next on the list but able to cover short distances now and also the cough has almost stopped. As I said I think, I met some lovely people in the ward and unlike me they were really really poorly but still managed to have a laugh and we all took in turns to choose a song which we then had a go at singing and we got one of the nurses to join in. The sister said we were all crazy but she was happy to keep us if we wanted to stay. Honest being with those other cancer patience I realised just how lucky I am.

Right I hope you are all managing with what you have to put up with and still managing to stay positive and smile. The sun is shining brightly out there but there is still a chill in the air so not going any where till later when it warms up.

Right this calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy and walked right up to the pharmacist looked him straight in the eyes and said "I want to buy some cyanide please."

"Why would you want cyanide" ? said the pharmacist.

"I need it to poison my husband" the lady said.

"Lord have mercy!! I can not give you cyanide to kill your husband its against the law, we would both be in awful trouble and end up in prison" he replied.

The lady calmly opened her handbag and took out a photograph of her husband and the pharmacist's wife in bed together and handed it to him.

He took one look at it and said ......... "You never said you had a prescription".

Have a good day and look after yourselves :) ;) xxx Fred

Good morning Fred lovely to see you back x

Thanks Jan good to hear you as well xx :)

Welcome back Fred, it is good to log in and see you. Take care and resist any urge to repaint the kitchen! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Hello Xris no chance of me starting on the kitchen just yet as for me the worse part is the preparation of washing every thing down as some grease does manage to get on the ceiling and other places. Will save that for another day. x:) ;) Fred

Good too see you r back Fred I think your very brave

Take care


Hi Dorothy there is nothing brave about me love, I am just the same as the rest of you, we get on with it. Keep smiling xx :)

Haha, funny joke Fred. glad to see you are well on the mend. Your friends on the ward will be missing you.,, and you them. somehow very close attachments seem to be made like that - problems shared. Ive tried to keep a few jokes coming in your absence, to keep us smiling as per orders. I can sit back now! Now no kitchen decorating - mine hasn't been done for years, even though someone else would do it, its all the upheaval puts me off.

Love Iris x

Iris Thanks for that I read your jokes and please carry on, two jokes give twice as many smiles. You are right I am in touch with two of the blokes via E mail, the others are still in hospital and will be for a good while. :) xxx Fred

My pleasure,just making sure you take it steady.πŸ˜€

I wondered if you would be singing "Oh what a Wonderful Morning" to the nurses but I didn't expect you to be leading a NHS male voice choir.

Best wishes

We also had a joke telling time one night and the nurses even sat in with us and some were a bit risky.x :)

Hi polly good to hear from you, stay happy xxx :) Fred

Hi Fred - lovely to see you back & firing on all cylinders (well almost!!!!) As everyone says , it brings a smile in the mornings when we see a post from you . Take it easy & forget about that decorating but when your up to it my kitchen, living room & hall will be waiting . We live almost on the coast in Pembrokeshire so you can have a holiday as well ( I wouldn't expect you the travel every day !!!!) Get plenty of jokes ready as I am having Orthopaedic surgery on June 5th & will be housebound for some time so I shall be reaching for you first thing in the mornings ( my husband won't mind & besides he'll be too busy waiting on me hand& foot - pardon the pun !!!!) Love Helen.xxxx 🐒🐌🐒🐌 This will be me for about eight weeks !

Hi there cheeky, thanks for the message and tell hubby I am tea with no sugar lol I am sure every thing will go like clockwork on the 5th June and I am not winding you up lol x. I will hunt for some good jokes ready for your recovery period. :) xxx Fred

Ha haaaa...good one Fred and good sunny morning to you. I'ts nice to see you back in the forum with a joke and a smile. I hope you continue to make a recovery over the next few days.....then you can start on the kitchen. lol :-) xxx

Thanks Lyn as for the kitchen I might just need a long long recovery time lol no I really must make a start soon maybe a game of golf first also my lovely granddaughter has said she is going to take me up to Gosport to visit the old submarine school where I did my escape training for the first time back in the 1960's this will be early June so really looking forward to that. How are the little bundles of fluff ? :) ;) xxx Fred

Ooh that will be a nice visit Fred and something to look forward to.

The fluffs are fine...it's been raining the last few days so I haven't been over the lake. But I do know that Elvis (the male swan) has now stopped wandering across the road to look at his reflection in the office door. The door has been painted over in a non reflective paint so that's stopped Elvis in his tracks. lol I may pop over later to check on them all. Meanwhile, I've just mowed the lawns so that's my exercise for the day :-) xxx

That's good about Elvis and rather caring that the shop had the non reflector paint used on the door. I hope you sorted out your lens and its not caused ant problems. Pleased to see your keeping fit mowing the lawn's are you using a push me, pull me or an electric one?. :) xxxx

Crumbs Fred...it's an electric mower...lol I don't want to make life too difficult. lol :-) xxx

Well you have to switch it on and off and steer it around the lawn and empty the cuttings, so you sit down and relax love you must be worn out lol :) xxx

I had to laugh at that I don't have a fan club we all have the same fan club which is this forum so please lets hear from you more often that way we help each other through each day :) ;) :D xxx Fred
